# Questions tagged [timeseries-segmentation]

Time series segmentation arises in time series analysis and digital signal processing. An input time-series is divided into a sequence of discrete segments in order to reveal the underlying properties of its source. Note that this is different from time series clustering!

### How to model a discontinuous Time Series with two or more "components"?

Suppose a time series clearly has two or more “components”, e.g. a “zero” component and another one that looks like a continuous series. Example: Suppose we can’t find covariates that can explain why ...
